Gaming categories on Google Play.

Posted May 18, 2012 at 5:51 am in Threads > Apps & Games

Google Play is now at a point where it has a pretty good (and wide) selection of apps and games.

The apps set of categories are quite extensive and although they could all do with a set of sub-categories, make sense and normally enable you to find what you are looking for.

However to me, the games categories, especially if you’re wanting some proper gaming (i.e. not just casual), are not useful at all.

I’m a PC rpg and strategy gamer (with occasional fps), if I go to Steam, or gog.com (or similar) I can go straight to the rpg or strategy genre and quickly find something relevant to me, if I go to Google Play I go to “Arcade & Action” and sometimes find something I want to play (e.g. Currently I don’t get anything till number 9, which is “Great Little War Game”, which I already have).

To me this is where the tegraZone is much better as it has a much better set of categories. Although it doesn’t yet have the range of games to really need them.

 

Is it just me or do other people just get lost and give up when trying to find games on Google Play and what categories would you like to see?
